NASA probably bought the same model as the US Army to simplify maintenance, spares and pilot training.

US Army is operating the UH-72 Lakota which is a version of the EC145, not of the smaller H135 (different engines, main rotor and tail rotor).

Great pictures.

This probably shouldn't be in this thread, but I've got to say this. While I was studying these pictures, I got this feeling I had seen this basic shape in a NASA image. After thinking for a bit, it hit me. This old Robert McCall painting. And, what's not to love about the idea of a Huey flying out of the VAB?

What's the betting Telly Savalas could still beat these with a worn-out old Stearman cropduster . ;)

Got to say, the NASA colour scheme looks good on them.
